My nutritionist advised me to keep the sugar intake around 60gr per day, proteins between 80 and 100 gr (I was never able to eat that many proteins…), 60gr of fat per day (but only for the first couple of weeks, and only unsaturated fats. My saturated fats are below 10gr a day, which is the recommended amount of 10% over a 1000 calories diet.
For the first two weeks limit exercise or don't exercise at all.
Buy fresh, local, seasonal, eat them raw, in salads, make smoothies, soups, steamed, sautéed, roasted, grilled, rotate all different colors in your diet!
Most candida diet plans eliminate all dairies but leave plain yogurt with good bacteria in it like acidophilus and bifidus. Those should be listed in the ingredients of the yogurt. I chose goat milk yogurt, it's easier to digest then cow milk, Red Wood Hill Farm is a good brand, is sold by Whole Foods in the U.S.. If you don't have any problem with cow milk, a good yogurt to buy is FAGE.
Meat and Eggs:
Buy fresh meat, locally sourced, organic, grass fed, certified humane.
I buy the one in the cans with the lowest sugar content. I use less then one serving to make amazingly sweet vegetable smoothies.
My to-go detox supplement, add it to smoothies and guacamole for all those wonderful amino acids.
A blend of Dandelion root leaf and flower, Graper Root, Milk Thistle Seed, Artichoke leaf, Schisandra Berry, Fennel Seed, made by Herb Pharm, to help you cleanse and detox.
WHAT IF I GO OUT TO DINNER????
There is always at least one grilled piece of meat with a side of steamed or sautéed veggies in every restaurant, or order a salad "When Harry Met Sally" style, telling the waiter exactly what you want in it. At ethnic restaurants be mindful of cream, cheese, breading, at a sushi place go for raw fish and that delicious seaweed salad!
WHAT IF I WANNA CHEAT????
Go ahead and cheat if you must, but at least the day after have a nice detox day with lots of raw vegetables and no meat!
I, for example, have to drink red wine. I choose dry red wine (like cabernet or chianti), have one or two glasses only once a week. I think I also had some cake for my husband's 40th birthday. I mean, what the heck, right?
I hope this was helpful!
